Pune: An inspirational story came to the fore when a city-based hospital took a crucial decision on life-saving surgery to save a 21-year-old boy, who was grievously injured while trying to save a girl from being molested.
The law student, Parth Vyas, came forward to save his female friend when a group of men tried to misbehave with her at a local bar in Mundhwa. However, during this, the boy was seriously injured as he was attacked by these men.
Speaking about the incident, Rohit Vyas, Parth’s father, who hails from Mumbai and is a practising lawyer, noted that it all started when the girl wanted to go to the washroom and the guys started following her.
“When my son tried to stop them, it led to an argument. When Parth informed the management about what was happening and got the person and his friends thrown out, it probably infuriated them. That is when they decided to take revenge,” said Vyas.
Taken to hospital
Parth was rushed to city-based Columbia Asia Hospital. Dr Pravin Survashe, consultant neurosurgeon at the hospital, said that the patient arrived at the hospital in a seriously injured condition. “He had suffered a severe blow to the head, the skull vault was fractured and he was bleeding profusely. He also had a ruptured eardrum compromising his hearing on the same side.” said Survashe.
“He was taken for surgery on an emergency basis. Surgery was risky as it carried a definite risk of post-operative neurological deficits like paralysis of the right side of body or loss of vision. Hence, all the precautions were taken to avoid any further damage to the brain,” He further added.
Dr Viju Rajan, General Manager at Columbia Asia Hospital, Pune, said that on seeing Parth’s condition, surgery was the only option to save his life.
“But the surgery would not have been such a success if the patient had not reached here on time. The surgery, which was carried by our doctors and their team, turned out to be a great success, as Parth has recovered well without any significant neurological deficits,” Dr Viju Ranjan said.
The doctors sprang into action and a team comprising Emergency Resident Doctors and neurosurgeons came together to save the life of the young boy. The hospital quickly arranged the team to control his bleeding and maintain his blood pressure.
